A great pub & restaurant offering a nice menu of the usual pub favorites
Special mention of the “Pie Special” Please see the photograph below for the various options....
I enjoyed the Chicken Pie served with carrots, spinach & cauliflower in white sauce + chips...( not French Fries)
My food arrived quickly & was delicious!
With another 5 different pies to go until I have tried them all it’s going to be tough job....... but someone has to do it I suppose!
“Bang” goes the diet now!More
After numerous enjoyable experiences it was unfortunate to have to tolerate a complete meltdown in all aspects.
On arrival for an evening meal, we were seated and our drinks orders taken but no menus were forthcoming. On receiving our drinks we had to remind the...waitron to give us some menu’s
We then placed our meal order and after about 45 min after the table next to us received their meals we queried with the waitron where ours was, only to be told on follow up that the meal we ordered was not available. We then changed our order and again after about a half hour queried the delay with who we assumed was the duty manager only to be confronted with an extremely dismissive attitude and comment.
After another 15 minutes the meal arrived. What we received was completely below standard. Nevertheless we finished the meal and decided to leave only to be presented with a bill that overcharged for the items ordered.
A complete and utter unacceptable experienceMore

Thank you for your brutal long winded review Mr ! It would of taken less effort to call me and let me apologize profusely and sincerely to you in person , and to make sure you were refunded in full as is deserved when an...More
Good pub and very reasonably priced eating. There is however an issue with one of the (male) bar staff who, on a recent visit, was extremely rude to me when I asked to try one of the beers before ordering. He muttered something along the...lines of ‘I assume you’ll be paying’ before blanking me and taking ages to, grudgingly, pour me the sample ..he is clearly in the wrong job. Rest of the staff were delightful, including our lovely waitress, so I am not going to condemn the barrel because of one bad apple.More

We were lucky enough to find Bosun's Pub and Grill during our stay in Knysna and we enjoyed it so much that we returned there 3 times. The food was wonderful, the beer cold and the staff were very friendly all combined with a great...pub atmosphere.
e highly recommend this place.More
Busy lunch time and a charming waitress working hard pouring good pints, taking orders and serving great food (she got help later!). Reminded me of an old fashioned and slightly un-gentrified English pub. Really nice. Food good - we had mussels and liver. Excellent value.
With so many restaurants in Knysna, we decide to one close to our Holiday Studio for a night out. This warm and comfortable restaurant was just the place for us. The chef made some effort to dish up an old dish that was not on...the menu anymore and it was delicious!
The atmosphere was real cosy and friendly! The waiter was very nice and friendly and we had a joyful evening!More
We were taken to Bosuns by a local friend. Don't be fooled by the uneventful exterior, this is a close an English pub experience you will get when not on Mud Island.
The beef and Guinness pie is legendary, the fish basket good and the...burgers too!
Throw in proper pub atmosphere, and you have a winner. We'll no longer drive past, we are fans!More
We were sceptical because of some negative ratings, but decided to try it out. The chicken burger, beef burger, lamb liver, schnitzel, beef guinness pie and chicken strips baskets were all tasty adequate portions. Service was good and no long waiting. Will visit again next...time in Knysna.More
Just had a lovely meal at Bosuns as decided we'd had enough of hotel buffet. Shepherds Pie and Steak and Guiness Pie were just like home followed by two large portions of Malva Pudding and custard accompanied by a lovely bottle of red. Excellent value...for money and lovely setting watching the sunset from the deck.More
